7). 8). The set of all the interior points of 5 is called the interior of 5. 8). Note that a boundary point of 5 may or may not be an element of S. The set of all boundary points of 5 is called the boundary of S. 9 Open and closed sets A set 5 is said to be open if it contains a neighborhood of each of its points, that is, if each of its points is an interior point, or equivalently, if 5 contains no boundary points. 9). We can show that a set is closed if and only if its complement is open. A set that is contained in a ball of finite radius is said to be bounded.
